Personality is what matters, and the Ragdoll is named for its temperament. The Ragdoll is supposed to be like a child’s ragdoll and many will go limp in your arms and flop like a stuffed doll when cuddled. In general, the Ragdoll cat is a loving, quiet cat with a very laid back disposition. If you are looking for a very active cat or a talkative cat, a Ragdoll probably is not the breed for you, although kittens and young adults can be very rambunctious and most Ragdolls are always willing to play. Ragdolls are known for their tolerant attitudes with other animals and especially children and many will allow themselves to be dressed in doll clothes and carried around by youngsters with absolutely no resistance. They are often compared to dogs because of their friendliness and intelligence and have even been taught to play fetch.
